    The only one of those I haven't read is Why is Sex Fun, but I haven't been able to find a free copy yet. I'll keep looking.
    My library carries absolutely everything he's written, but I stalled on the civilizations book, all that touchy-feely stuff about Montana... very different from his other writings.

    I've just finished The Help by Kathryn Stockett, I really enjoyed it. I liked the writing style and found it thought provoking. I haven't seen the film, not sure if it would live up to the book for me!

    I have a huuuggggeeeee wishlist on Amazon filled with books.

    I've been wanting to read a physical paperback lately, and something new, so I snagged Zodiac by Neal Stephenson from one of my parents' bookcases and will be starting that soon (tonight?).
    Current interests - Starting Strength (reading it very slowly)

    Depression Lies

    200 pages into Flashback by Dan Simmons. Thinking of shelving it. Anyone read and think I should continue?? Thanks.

I have the sequel from the library and I'll probably read it when I run out of novels. Right now I'm reading Magician: Apprentice, which is Raymond Feist's first fantasy novel.
    The Abercrombie books are great! He wrote a couple more, which were good but not as compelling as the original trilogy.
    I've been chewing through books since getting an iPad - that "one-click" book shopping on Amazon is going to be the death of my bank account. So far, loved the Deborah Harkness books (A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night) and got into Gillian Flynn too.

    I just read Shanghai Girls by Lisa See, and next on the list is the sequel, Dreams of Joy. I recently discovered that I can get e-books from our library, so I've been reading lots lately!

    Up next: The Sublime Object of Ideology by Slavoj Žižek

    I wish I had time for a novel right now...even the time I log on here is when I am sick of trying to write my paper.

    I understand that I don't want productive activity and trade controlled by an arbitrary metal.

    I'd heartily recommend Debt: The First 5,000 Years, but only if you're ready for a challenge.
